Group hires AI experts from Google to help drive AI in the construction sector

The Nemetschek Group, which owns several AEC brands including Graphisoft, Vectorworks, Allplan, Solibri and Bluebeam, has formed the AI Innovation Hub.

According to the company, the aim of the hub is to bundle the existing AI activities within the Group and accelerate the adoption of AI in the AEC/O and media and entertainment industries.

The hub will be led by Charles Sheridan, chief AI and data officer, and Julian Geiger, vice president AI product and transformation, who are joining the Group from Google this month.

According to Nemetschek, the main focus of the AI Innovation Hub is to drive ‘ethical and trustworthy’ AI initiatives across the brand portfolio with partners, alliances, and customers.

The Group aims to accelerate product development as well as the testing and exploring of deploying AI tools such as AI Visualizer (a new feature in Archicad, Allplan and Vectorworks), 3D Drawings (part of Bluebeam Cloud) and the dTwin platform to help users increase productivity and sustainability in their processes.

“I’m truly excited to embark on this journey together with the Nemetschek team. The company is not only committed to driving innovation and sustainability in the AEC/O industry but also prioritises ethics and the responsible integration of AI. The establishment of the AI Innovation Hub reflects our dedication to customer needs and requirements”, said Sheridan.
